Belly Button =]

so, we are all aware (well most of us are anyways) of veggie-tales. the greatest animated bible videos in the world! Because today is Friday at seminary we watched The Ballad Of Little Joe. It is a western veggie-tales version of the bible Joseph and the coat of many colors. =]
A little background. Ali, Jenna and me. We are the only ones who watched Veggie-Tales as kids, so the rest of the seminary students (Lauren, Jessica and Alexis), all sat there with straight faces while Ali, Jenna and I laughed our heads off... =P  and then the silly song came on "Belly Button - Boyz In The Sink"

you cannot go through this video without doing one of two things 1: Laugh your head off, or 2: Stare at the screen and wonder why you wasted your time...
I don't doubt the creators of Veggie-Tales will be grateful for my promotions!
Thanks again for reading my blog =]

So, last night i forgot to set my alarm. Seminary starts at 6:15 and i woke up at six o'clock. which would have been okay if i lived ten minutes away from the church building.... but i live 15 minutes away. So i woke up with Ali's phone ringing to the theme song of Darkwing Duck =P
yeah, Jenna was calling her, wanting to find out what in the world was taking us so long. because we normally pick her up at 6:50.
Seminary mornings are never boring. One time Jenna was super tired so she was WAYYYY out of it. so she was talking quickly and babbling on and on about something i don't really remember, but i remember her doing something weird with her hands.... and then Brother Berry (my seminary teacher) tried to do it too.... it was an interesting morning.
oh an then we were talking about the plan of salvation and Bro. Berry asked us why we couldn't remember the war in heaven. i was really tired so i said "Because of the Veil of Forgetness." ermmm.... Everyone in seminary is not letting me live that one down.... Brother Berry called me the 'star student' for the rest of class.... =/
I'm still waiting for a good moment to use against ali for blackmail at any time. =]

cloaks... =]

I've decided that cloaks should not be a thing of the past. they are so cool looking. if only there was some way to get the instant thought 'whoa if you wear a cloak out in public you are wierd.' out of everyone's head... that would be cool.

also, i think that this coat is so super cool. i want it. so much. i can't even control myself.... (yes i can i'm just being dramatic because i REALLY want it.) (i tried to post the pitcure, but it doen't work... =/ sorry.) (you just have to click on the link...)
it makes me thing of a cloak in a way... maybe that's why i like it.

but back to cloaks. i think they are so cool. like this one, is awesome. =]

haha sorry. couldn't help it.

my Halloween costume this year involves a cloak. i'll post pictures once i'm done making it. it is going to be EPIC!!! =] but for now, i am going to let you decide whether cloaks are lame, weird, okay, stupid, or awesome... haha comment and tell me what you think.

The Dog Days Are Over

Have you ever thought about how much music influences you? What about how much you hear every day? From your favorite song to the rustling of your sheets as you make your bed. Everything has sound. Have you ever wondered what it would be like it the sound of writing with a pencil would be replaced with long squeaks? that would be strange... that was a bad example. what about if a dog meowed and a cat barked? what would be strange... very strange indeed. But of course if dogs meowed and cats barked then it wouldn't be weird and we would think that it was weird if dogs barked and cats meowed. I'm sorry, i probably lost you in all of that. haha, i seem to be that way sometimes.... i ramble. even in text.

What i was trying to get to is that there are so many good sounds in the world, mainly music. so i have decided to treat you to a list of GREAT songs. ones that i love to jam out to. mellow out to. and then just listen to. =]
P.S. I have a wide variety, be aware of that.

Never Forget You (feat. John Legend) - Lupe Fiasco*
Kids - MGMT
Somewhere Only We Know - Keane*
Set Fire To the Rain - Adele
Not Over You - Gavin DeGraw*

I'm also really liking this cover of Rolling In The Deep by Adele

I could probably go on for 300 more songs that i LOVE to listen to. =] maybe I'll post about more music later. I probably will. but for now. Enjoy these wonderful songs. they are my favorites right now.
None of these songs are in any particular order of preference, but they are songs that I normally wouldn't skip if they were played on my iPod. I hope I was helpful to you and your music selection.


*FAVORITES!!!! =] I will NEVER get tired of these songs.

So I have recently found a new respect for pink. It is most definetly a femenine color, but it can also be masculine. take this pitcure for example, don't you like how the only one wearing pink is my Dad? And then me, my sisters and my mother are all wearing black, gray, and white?

This actually makes me thunk back to a blog post that my mom wrote maybe three months ago. It does help you come to undertsnad pink's importance in things.

So, those are my thoughts today... haha

It has been 10 years since so many people lost loved ones on that terrible september day in 2001. and if you want me to be fully honest, i completely forgot it was 9/11 until I was on my way to church and we passed a big huge event going on with a bunch of mini American flags posted in the grass only sixinches away from each other.
(just a side note. i know the pictures run off the edge of the posting bar, but i wanted to be as bis as possible for you to relly look at them.)

These are costom made flags to honor 9-11 (I didn't take this picture)

After that moment Ireally strated to think about all the people who lost a loved one, I have no doubt many of them are still grieving the loss(es) of loved ones. Over 1000 childred lost on or both parents that day...
 Keep those who lost someone in your prayers.
Las Vegas firefighter Capt. Eric Littmann walks in a parade commemorating the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Sept. 11, 2011, in Las Vegas, Nev.
A family member of one of the victims of the crash of United Flight 93 walks along a part of the Flight 93 National Memorial following its dedication. The names of the 40 victims of the crash are inscribed on the marble panels.
If you are someone who lost a loved one from 9-11, please know that I am praying for you.

I love all of you. I mean it. Let's make sure to NEVER let this happen again.

The things i need most.

A little while ago i was looking through a bunch of my pictures. I was staring at all the faces of people i see every day and thinking, "how on earth did i get so lucky to have such great people in my life?"

even with all their... quirks.

since then i have been thinking a lot about how much i love everyone, and how everyone needs to love and be loved. I thought about how much i love to document moments and create memories. Every picture has a story. even if they were taken five seconds after one another.

 take these two pictures for example. Jenna is doing two completely different things, but i took them only a few seconds after each other. Not only are these two pictures not quite the same, but they also show off just a little bit of the awesome personality of my neighbor, cousin, best friend, and non-biological sister. I still remember that night quite well. While Jenna and i were messing around taking pictures, my two little brothers were cleaning the dishes. The said they would give me a break since i did the the dishes earlier that day.

i could go on and on about all the different ways to document memories and then laugh about them later; but i promise you, you would probably get quite bored.
Well what i am really trying to say is, i am quite thankful for all my loved ones. You all brighten my day and make my burden lighter. Even if i don't talk to you very much, that doesn't mean I'm not thinking about your sweet spirit, because trust me, even thinking about my friends and family makes me laugh.
Anyways, be cool, stay strong, and don't let anyone wipe the smile off your face.

How ridiculous.

I think i know one thing for sure. cowtown is DA BOMB! i got a sweatshirt (i know it is summer) for $15 dollars today. it's retail price is $50. no i am not going to put it on and take a picture of me wearing it because i am currently covered in chicken grease from cleaning ovens at work. (maybe later) you can get movies for five bucks and purses for ten. a pair of earrings from $1-$5 and and kind of Mexican food imaginable. who knew that a flea market could be so awesome? oh wait... i did. that is why i work in the center of it all.

I work in a soft pretzel and chicken stand in the first barn (in case you ever want to go to cowtown to see me) the pretzels are better then Auntie Anne's. (in my opinion.)

i think that the whole reason i am telling ya'll about where i work is because i just got home and have to stand in line for the showers.... be grateful for showers, because one day you might have to stand in line to get one...

as the website says, "Often Imitated, but Never Repeated."

we aren't just a rodeo. we are the most bangin' flea market in the history of flea markets. come see me, i work on Saturdays. =]

Why not?

I made a blog. so if you want to read my blog. be prepared for absolute randomness. because that is what is coming to you. hahaha.
